Dew Drops

     OK, I know winter has really just arrived but for all of you who are already shivering under a thick blanket of snow, I want to bring you a breath of hope that spring will show itself.  :-D


     This sweet image is from House Mouse, stamped on a scrap of white CS and colored with polychromos pencils.  I based the design on this sketch from The Outlawz.


     The scalloped die is from Sizzix and the stitched circle die (also a scrap) is by Die-namics.  I layered those cuts on top of each other and mounted them onto a rectangle of green CS.  All of that went onto a pre-made, pale lilac, card base.  I used a corner punch by Fiskars to cut the purple corners (scraps) and then tied double-bowtie bows from gingham ribbon.

     Finally, I punched the last bit of scrap left over from making the corner bits and made the two tiny butterflies which are attached to the image.

     Challenges:

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
